    As Michael's co-conspirator in this, you cannot overestimate the amount of "Geeking Out" that occurred. This little black screen and blocky text was a time machine that took us back nearly 40 years to a time when you used to just stare at a TRS-80 and go "Oooooooooh". Incredibly the same feelings were evoked even though we both have watches that are more powerful than that machine ever hoped to be.
